Roger Rabbit short. At Showcase: 1:30, 4:10, 7:10, 9:45, 12:10.

fated hick. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:05, 7:30, 10, 12:15.

starring Nicolas Cage. At Showcase: 1:05, 3:15, 5:25, 7:40, 9:55, 12.

T H U R S D A Y T H U R S D A Y

"Fire in the Sky," a mediation on U. F. 0. sightings, debuts Friday

HOMEWARD BOUND This Disney dog-and-cat adventure movie might
have been watchable if they didn't make the animals talk. We hear the
under-six crowd loves it, however. At Showcase: 1, 3, 5, 7.
LOADED WEAPON I We may now pronounce National Lampoon dead.
Good riddance. At State: 2, 4:30, 7, 9:15, 11.
LoREzO's OIL Director George Miller ("Mad Max") really can do it all.
This potential disease-of-the-week schlock becomes an intense, brilliant
drama in Miller's hands, with bravissino performances by Susan Sarandon
and Nick Nolte. At State: 2, 4:30, 7:10, 9:45.
MAD DOG AND GLORY Director John McNaughton ("Henry, Portrait of a
Serial Killer") goes Hollywood with Robert DeNiro, Uma Thurman and the
great Bill Murray. At Showcase: 12:40, 2:55, 5:10, 7:25, 9:50, 11:55.
SCENT OF A WOMAN The Golden Globe winner for the best picture of
1992 will not win the Oscar for best picture. Even the Academy isn't that
dumb. At Showcase: 9:15, 12:15.
SHADOW OF THE WOLF This "Dances With Wolves" wanna-be stars the
man with the great middle name, Lou Diamond Phillips. The most expen-
sive Canadian movie in history - sorry, we shouldn't laugh. The big
question: what the hell is Toshiro Mifune doing in this movie? At Show-
case: 2:35 only.
SOMMERSBY Yet another Hollywood pillaging of a European film, this
one of that favorite French-class hit, "The Return of Martin Guerre." Yet
this one's good, believe it or not, even with Dick Gere in the Depardieu
role. From the director of "Queen of Hearts." At Showcase: 12:15, 4:55,
7:20.
SWING KIDS Yes, it's the Nazi musical from Hollywood Pictures. Didn't
Mel Brooks do this already in "Springtime for Hitler"? The big question:
what the hell is Kenneth Branagh doing in this movie? At Showcase: 1:20,
4, 7:05, 9:30, 12.
UN:ORGIVEN The best Western since "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid," with
Oscar winner for Best Director Clint Eastwood. At Showcase: 9:10, 11:55.
UNrAmED HEART Marisa Tomei stars in this Frankie and Johnnyesque
romance; too bad it stars the two most annoying young actors alive, Rosie
Perez and Christian Slater. At Showcase: 12:55, 3:10, 5:25, 7:45, 10:05,
12:15.

Gorka, a singer/songwriter head and nylon strings above the rest tonight at
Hill Auditorium, 7:30 p.m., $17.50-$20, 763-TKTS
